Question about Microwave Ovens
The Microwave works fine for 3 to 5 minutes the the power goes out. After about 15 minutes it resets its self and will work fine for a while as long as you don't cook over about 5 minutes.
You can remove the grille and control panel and you may be able to see the magnetron. If not, the oven will have to come out of the wall and the cover will have to come off.
At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
There may be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test the magnetron, but please read the safety info: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
Even though it passes these tests, it may still be bad. If the cooling fan is working, then it's the magnetron. That simple, I'm afraid.
